I have a spare bed at Sands in Reno

Hi,

I have a room until sunday morning in a smoker room at Sands Regency in Reno

I have a spare kingsize bed so if you need a place to stay give me a call on +46723308250 or PM me here, texting me doesn't work since I have a swedish number with some issues on dataroaming.

Re: LA - Reno transport? + cheap stay Reno 26-30 Aug + Playa

Just checked out Amtrak. Wow, our train system is shitty. Now I get why the want to build that track from LA to San Fran. No strait shot and half of the trip is on a bus. Looks like Grey Hound is your best shot if you don't find a ride with someone else. Yeah I checked them out as well, so now I'm ...

Re: LA - Reno transport? + cheap stay Reno 26-30 Aug + Playa

Circus Circus had cheap rooms the last I checked. There are a lot of burners coming up from LA, not sure about your dates though. Are you on the rideshare board? I used to take greyhound buses a lot and though the LA station was a bit scary, I had no troubles. Isn't there an Amtrak train or somethi...

Re: LA - Reno transport? + cheap stay Reno 26-30 Aug + Playa

I wouldn't advise you to take the Greyhound Bus. You won't like the people you are traveling with--AT ALL. And, the stations are not in the best part of most towns. I have the misfortune of taking the Greyhound from Los Angeles to Las Vegas several years ago and it was not pleasant nor safe, especi...

Re: Hello and Welcome... What's your name? Tell me about You

I suppose you mean that you are not accustomed to heat and may sweat more than the average person out of "sheer surprise". That may be so, or not, I don't know. But it is also possible to drink too much water. In fact, it can be fatal. So don't overdo it. The desert has another requirement, however...

Where do I find used bicycles in Reno?

Hi all, I'm trying to find somewhere to buy a used bike in Reno. Craigslist is one option I know, but I think it would be better to go to a store that sell used bikes and also buy some extra packagestuff and bike around Reno for a couple of days as well, get the picture? :P I am coming in from Swede...

Re: Hello and Welcome... What's your name? Tell me about You

Alexztheman, sounds like you have the right attitude. Just do yourself a huge favor. Remember, there's ALWAYS something else you'll need or want before you get there, and even after you get there. Take care of the BIG basics first......WATER. Lots of it. That's all I'll say. Got ya! Since Sweden is...
